So how do you handle it when your baby/child tries to push boundaries? Connor always tries to play/bang/hit my computer, and pull the plug out of it. I usually move his hand away and say firmly "No". Of course this will someimes lead to him head butting the couch and throwing a tantrum!!! Is it too early for Time out? And how does that work?? LOL

I alos have a "spirited" little one like that:) my ODD is such a little boundry pusher. I SWEAR somedays she wants me to flip out just so she knows where that line is and can stay just a smidge behind that next time.

Have you ever watched "Super Nanny"? I have a 7 year old and Avalyn will be 1 in Aug. There are some really good tips and techniques on there. You can also go to supernanny.com I don't think it's too early for time out, I've actually learned with DS that the early you implement discipline, the easier things will be down the road.
